2018 GEELONG FATHER OF THE YEAR AWARD
The Geelong Father of the Year Award is now in it's 19th year, and continues to attract a very strong response from the local community.
In 2017, over 1,000+ entries were received from local primary school children across the region, and a record 25+ schools participated in the initiative.
Linking in with Fathers' Day, the children are asked to nominate their 'special bloke' (their father or a special father-figure), with a short story as to why this particular individual is special to them.
Such a simple gesture like a nomination, has not only seen recognition of amazing dads' and similar gents but has gained traction in raising awareness of Bethany's fantastic services available to the community.
SIRSOCK is proud to support the Bethany - Geelong Father of the Year Award, and we wish to raise awareness about the superb services that Bethany offers.
